Multiple Images Created From One Dvd?

Question

All,

 

I'm a bit confused by something that happened today, and hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.

 

I'm using Roxio Creator Silver 10 (the only burning software approved across our enterprise so I'm stuck with it) to save an image of a source disc for a deployable electronic tech manual. When I ran "Create Disc Image" in Roxio, it actually created 3 separate files, labeled:

 

filename.gi

filename (1_0).gi

filename (1_1).gi

 

My question is: how do I use these 3 image files when burning the image back to a number of DVDs, so that I don't have to send the one and only source disc across the country to all of our remote sites so that the technicians can install the manual on thir laptops?

 

Any ideas or suggestions gratefully accepted.

You might want to check to see if anything in the volume licensing URL helps you.

I don't know what features your version of Roxio Creator 10 Silver has compared to the standard Roxio Creator 10 version.

Does if have Burn Image option? If yes then you should be able to use that to burn the file back to a DVD?

Also, there should have been an option also to create an iso image file? Do you have that?

 

Exactly what is it you want to do? Simply make copies of the original DVD or what?

Hello BD,

 

The Create Disc Image part of Easy Media Creator 10 creates a .GI or "Global Image" file by default, but it will create the much more useful .ISO file if you ask it.

 

I have the EMC 10 Suite, but your cut-down Creator 10 Silver shouldn't be too different in this respect. Ehat to do next depends on what you want to do ultimately.

 

To create a useful image you can send to your remote sites:

-Run 'Create Disc Image', click on the Browse button, and in the dialog box which appears, use the pull-down to change the 'Save as type' to ISO

-insert your original and create an .ISO file which any of your techs can burn to disc with common software.

To burn a disc from a .GI set of files:

.GI files are usually not allowed to exceed 2 GB in size, so creating software splits them into sets. A 4.7 GB will typically have three parts, and filename.gi is the main part.

 

Run 'Burn Image to Disc', and select filename.gi as your source image. The software will pick up and use filename(1_0) and filename(1_1) when it needs them.

 

Hope this helps, but if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Aha! That is exactly the answer I needed. I was wondering how to tell the software to use multiple .gi files when executing the "Burn Image to Disc" step, but if the software already knows how to do that, I'm good to go.

 

Thanks very much for your help, Brendon!
